Born in Chicago on August 9, 1942 Jack DeJohnette started out playing the piano but switched to drums.

He began his career playing R&B, hard bop, and avant-garde with his own groups in addition to those of Richard Abrams and Roscoe Mitchell.

After having moved to New York in 1966 DeJohnette became involved in jazz fusion as a member of the "Charles Lloyd Quartet" a group in which he would first encountered his long time collaborator Keith Jarrett.

In 1968 he joined Bill Evans' Trio followed by a brief stay with Stan Getz leading up to his first recordings with Miles Davis, first appearing on the albums "Directions" and "Bitches Brew."

Having released his first solo LP "The DeJohnette Complex" in 1968 Jack DeJohnette left the Davis' group in 1971 to devote his full attention to leading his own band.

He has since lead a secession of groups beginning in 1972 with the short lived experimental band "Compost" followed by the "Gateway Trio" (1975), "New Directions" (1978), and "Special Edition" (1979).

He would continued to perform with "Special Edition" well into the 1990s.

In 2012, Jack DeJohnette was awarded the NEA Jazz Masters Fellowship for his "significant lifetime contributions have helped to enrich jazz and further the growth of the art form."
